With stunning views overlooking the City, Barnsdall Park welcome Angelenos—21 years and older—to sip wine, picnic and watch the sunset for another not-to-be-missed season of wine tasting at the iconic cultural destination. Marking its 8th season and attracting sellout crowds, the renowned Barnsdall Friday Night Wine Tastings—the Foundation’s signature fundraising event—returns to the hill on June 3rd and continues through August 26th. While families of all ages are invited to enjoy the Park, picnic, dance, and participate in craft-making, due to legal regulations, only those ages 21+ will be allowed inside the fence for the wine tasting portion. Music will be presented by KCRW’s DJ Dan Wilcox and ongoing partner, Silverlake Wine, who will curate their fine selections of boutique artisanal wines for park-goers. Local gourmet cheese shop, The Cheese Store of Silverlake, is also sponsoring the event and there will be a number of specialty food trucks on hand from tacos to ice-cream! This year, Lyft is partnering with the Foundation to provide discounted rides to Barnsdall wine-goers.There will be a brand-new merchandise table with Barnsdall-centric swag available for purchase, including branded wine-tasting Tees, signature wine glasses, Barnsdall picnic blankets as well as savory and sweet snacks. Taking place on the West Lawn, from 5:30pm to 8:30pm, tickets cost $30 for a tasting and $45 for a tasting + tour of Frank Lloyd Wright’s UNESCO-nominated Hollyhock House. The event supports the Park’s capital projects, art programs, historic renovations and gallery exhibitions and tickets can be purchased on the bottom of this page.

As many of you know, parking is limited at Barnsdall and free spaces on the Hill often fill up within the first half-hour of any event. There is off-site parking at Kaiser Permanente at 1549 Edgemont, about a 5 minute walk to the wine tasting. If you arrive after 6pm we’d suggest going straight to the Kaiser Edgemont Lot. You can also get here via Metro or Bus to the Vermont/Sunset red line station. We of course encourage walking, biking, and carpooling! Click here to download the Parking Map PDF.
